Bright Pink is a non-profit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Over 300 TCU women attended the workshop held in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom. The workshop was interactive, having the audience use their cell phones to quiz each other on their knowledge about breast and ovarian cancer. “It was cool to take the quiz to see how at risk I am. That’s something I want to send to my friends so they know too,” Brooke Battaglia, a sophomore nursing major, said.From the reactions, people said they were surprised to learn they did not know as much about breast and ovarian cancer as they thought.  “I was shocked by how prevalent breast cancer is and how little I knew about the risk factors and what to do,” Battaglia said. “Going forward I’m just going to take the advice she gave us about our diet, exercise, and being self-aware.”  Those who attended the workshop learned about the risk factors, symptoms and what to talk about with their doctor.“A good piece of advice I would say is self-awareness,” Mersch said. “Be self-aware, not just in your health history, not just thinking about breast and ovarian cancer, but really just self-awareness about who you are, what you want in life, the choices that you’re making because that is just good life-long advice for anyone.”Mersch said she hopes that workshops like this take away the fear factor when talking about breast and ovarian cancer and make people more familiar and understanding when something is not normal.  Sophomore Kiana Stephen, a member of ZTA who planned the workshop, said education was an important part of the event. “Our goal with this is just to educate women at this age because it’s better to know now than too late about breast cancer about what they can do to help their chances of not getting it or what they should do if they’re high risk,” Stephen said.In November, Zeta is hosting their philanthropy event, Mr. ZTA, to raise money for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. The foundation benefits breast cancer research and education. For more information on Bright Pink, you can visit its website.

Earth Day 2020: Activating Change

first_imgThis year, Earth Day comes at a time when we are all adjusting to a new way of life. To protect the health of our global community, we are all doing our part – staying at home, observing social distancing guidelines, and embracing new virtual ways of staying connected. And with the world’s largest environmental event moving online, it reinforces that while protecting human health is the priority, there are also many ways we can continue to engage and remain steadfast in our commitment to the health of our planet.Sustainability has always been at the center of everything we do at Dell Technologies. We’re proud of what we have accomplished to date, but there is so much more we want to do. It’s why advancing sustainability is a critical part of our Progress Made Real plan which includes specific, measurable goals we want to achieve by the year 2030, including an ambitious ‘moonshot’ goal in each area, designed to push the boundaries of innovation and partnerships to achieve these.Accelerating the circular economyOur moonshot goal for sustainability is that by the year 2030, for every product a customer buys, we will reuse or recycle an equivalent product, 100% of our packaging, and more than half of our product content will be made from recycled or renewable material. Our focus on accelerating the circular economy, activating partnerships between the public and private sectors, and pursuing materials and supply chain innovation is how we are going to get there.A great example of this is our work with Carbon Conversions, a start-up based in South Carolina which redesigned the way we use non-woven carbon fiber scraps in our products, allowing us to use even more of this waste material from the aerospace industry. Another is our work with NextWave plastics, supporting collaboration between large companies (IKEA, GM and HP, to name a few) to create a viable supply chain for ocean-bound plastics, and come up with ways to incorporate this material into future products and packaging.Committing to the climateThe theme of this year’s Earth Day is ‘climate action.’ Right now, there is a lot of attention on how staying at home is helping to reduce emissions. Dubbed ‘The Great Pause,’ this completely unique situation is providing us with insights into how changes to human behavior can make a significant impact. And as the world comes out of this, we can expect discussions about how we can continue to support this picture of a better world. One thing is for sure, technology will be a key contributor – virtual interactions, collaboration and communication methods – are all ways we can drive positive change today, and tomorrow.We know the consequences of climate change adversely impact the planet and our communities around the world, and we believe that technology has an important role to play in both mitigating and adapting to climate change. We have committed not only to set emissions goals across our facilities, supply chain and operations but to also look at how our customers can use our technology to advance their own sustainability and emissions goals. One example is our work with Ducks Unlimited, who are using our sensor technology to protect wetlands which not only are home to wildlife, but also serve as a natural resource to reduce greenhouse gases.Celebrating 50 years of Earth DayA huge part of our success in the area of sustainability is the talent and passion our team members have for supporting their planet. From the designers and engineers delivering innovative sustainable solutions for our products and packaging, to the environmental initiatives being driven out of our facilities teams, through to our team member engagement in delivering on our goals – we literally could not make progress without them. On Earth Day, our team members will be supporting Earth Challenge 2020, a virtual volunteering opportunity for millions of people to support the world’s largest citizen science effort, recording the quality of the air outside their window. Each reading will add to a global database of knowledge and help scientists understand how our world works and how we can protect it. Click here to join.Right now, the world is experiencing change like never before. And while it is an incredibly uncertain time, it’s also been a time where we have seen the absolute power of the human spirit. It is the collaboration of people working together to respond to a global challenge that inspires me right now. And it reminds me of our purpose as a company, and why our commitment to social impact is so important. As one of the world’s largest technology companies, we have a responsibility to activate change today – and every day – for our people, for society and for the world.last_img read more

Neymar stars as Brazil beat Mexico to reach last eight

first_imgNeymar scored one goal and played a key role in the second as Brazil edged out Mexico in Samara to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for a seventh consecutive time.Brazil did not have it all their own way, especially in an opening period dominated by the Central Americans, but the five-time winners grew into what became a controlled performance.It means Mexico are once again eliminated at the last-16 stage – as they have been at every World Cup since 1994.They did have plenty of chances early on, and it was only after a largely frustrating first half for Brazil that Neymar started the move to put his side ahead.His run across goal and clever backheel won Willian space, and the Chelsea midfielder only needed two touches to drive into box and lay the ball across for the world’s most expensive player to slide home.It was Brazil’s 227th goal at the World Cup, meaning they overtake Germany as the all-time top scorers. Just moments earlier, Mexico’s Jesus Gallardo wasted a brilliant chance when he shot wildly over the crossbar instead of playing in Hirving Lozano.For much of the second half, Mexico’s bright start was just a memory, but Carlos Vela forced a save from Brazil goalkeeper Alisson with his side’s first shot on target not long after going behind.In the match’s closing stages they rallied once more, but Brazil defended stoically before doubling their lead on the break through a Roberto Firmino tap-in after Neymar’s effort was diverted by the toe of Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.Brazil will face Belgium or Japan – who meet in Rostov-on-Don in the day’s second match – in their last-eight tie in Kazan on Friday.last_img read more
